    Normally, our senior military leaders actually mean it when they speak works such as the Admiral's. I wish I could say the same about the words of our elected officials.

    It was a great speech and a noble sentiment. My DS (AROTC) actually emailed it to me a day before it was posted here. I gather it circulated through his battalion.
